Optical Coherence Tomography Market is projected to expand at a steady CAGR over the forecast period

Optical coherence tomography is high-resolution noninvasive imaging technology which is used to obtain cross-sectional images of the retina and optic nerve fibers. It uses light waves to produce high-resolution 2D images of the retina and related parts. Optical coherence tomography has evolved as one of the most important technologies used in ophthalmic practices. Unique features offered by this technology enable a broad range of research and clinical applications. This technology helps ophthalmologist to obtain images of distinctive layers of the retina which helps in diagnosis of various eye disorders including age-related macular degeneration and glaucoma. This technology employs light from the range of light sources to obtain the in-depth profile of retina.

There are two main methods of the OCT-time domain (TD) and spectral domain (SD). Time-domain optical coherence tomography uses broadband optical source and a photodetector. The principle of operation is based on partial coherence where photodetector senses variation in the interference to produce cross-sectional images. Recent advancements in OCT technology have enabled imaging of nontransparent tissues by use of longer wavelength to reduce scattering of light across eye surface. One of the major applications of the technology is to use in conventional excisional biopsy by providing high depth images of pathology that cannot be obtained by use of other imaging techniques. Another important application of OCT is use in surgical interventions by enabling to see beneath the surface of tissues for surgical procedures of sensitive structures such as eye vessels and nerves. Although OCT technology is primarily used in ophthalmology, however owing to its unique property, OCT has found application in other fields such as dermatology and cardiology.
